Jazz In Paris

So, I've been listening to this new batch (that I finally got hold of late last month), and there is some really good music here. The Lewis/Distel album has some great Barney Wilen on it. The Bechet features Vogue material, a septet from '52 and a sextet from '49--good sound, and Bechet seems to be having fun. I particularly liked the Ellington Alhambra stuff from October '58--good Hodges on that one. Roger Guerin is excellent on the "Hard Bop" album, and the Urtreger trio, recorded for tiny little Vega at the Club St. Germain in 1960, is a very fine trio album. The Mobley and Gordon records I got because I'm a JinP completist, but they sound just fine. The Django is a compilation. Have yet to listen to the Arvanitas and Barclay records.

I love this series. Hope it continues! They definitely have "cheaped" down the packaging a bit. As Lon noted, the digipacs have been replaced by gatefold paper sleeves, and the liner notes are now in French alone--no English translations. Full discographical info is still there, though. More! More!
